Living your life for a Purpose. What's yours?
Do you ever sit back and wonder how things would have been if you were someone else? Or where you would be in your life today if certain situations in your life had never happened? Well, that is the line of thought I was having on Thursday when I had the great honor of meeting a young lady who made me change my perspective of this life we live. She is a young woman, in her late twenties but when she narrates her story to you, you will be forgiven for thinking she’s lived for a century.
I need to share a few things with you about this woman to help you understand where my message today is stemming from. She hails from Kagera and was born in a humble background in a family of seven. She is the only girl in their family and as a result her father thought she would be better off living with his brother and his wife here in Dar Es Salaam, where she would supposedly be exposed to more opportunities. What he did not know is that his decision to send her to Dar Es Salaam was bound to scar her life permanently, literally.
